About this Item

Washington, DC: War Department, 1864 December 2. 12mo. Handbill. Near fine. Four-punched at left edge, not affecting text. Titled "Exchange of Prisoners of War," this General Order consists of Townsend's report of a prisoner exchange arranged between Generals William T. Sherman and John Bell Hood that took place in Rough and Ready, Georgia, on September 19, 22, 28 and 30, 1864. "United States prisoners received -- 146 commissioned officers. 212 non-commissioned officers. 770 privates. In all equivalent to 2,047 privates. Confederate prisoners received -- 128 commissioned officers. 225 non-commissioned officers. 979 privates. In all equivalent to 2,045 privates." How these numbers add up to 2,047 and 2,045 privates is beyond us -- must be the Old Math. Bookseller Inventory # 24837
